The Office of Special Investigations (OSI), U.S. Air 
Force, advised that TJ.S. Air Force regulations require that 
uniformed personnel and civilian U.S. Air Force employees 
coordinate any contact with Congressional representatives with 
the Legislative Liaison Office and that classified matters 
cannot be discussed with Congressional representatives without 
prior approval of the Legislative Liaison Office, OSI advised, 
that at the present time it cannot be determined whether an 
employee of a U.S. Air Force contractor, such as Rand Corpora¬ 
tion, would be bound by the same regulation; but if classified 
material was furnished to a Congressional representative, it 
could not have been with U.S. Air Force approval.

advised that a .review of the sign-in 
records from Octobe r 1969 through Ja nuary 1970 failed to re¬ 
flect any record of [ being at Rand Corporation

over the age of 12 years is required to sign the register.

however, that during Christmas holidays it was a normal

in such instances the practice of signing the register was

t He stated that the "McNamara Study" was a request 
by former"Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara to compile an 
outline of Viet Nam and the United States, commencing approximately 
19U0 U P to the present time. Rand Cor poration, am ong others, 
contributed in compiling this outline. ! I stated that b6 

the "McNamara Study" which is available at Rand Corporation would b7 ' 
be comprised of many volumes and would fill at least two file 
cabinets. It was determined that certain papers in this par¬ 
ticular "McNamara Study" would be classified by the Department 
of Defense as Secret, Top Secret and in some instances 
Confidential, depending on the particular paper.

Brigadier General Robert Hixon, whom you desired 
interviewed in this matter, was located at the Ponderosa Camp 
Ground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on June 16, 1971. 

During June, 1968, he was assigned to work with the task fore® 
which prepared the classified material involved in this case, 
which material is usually referred to as the ”McNamara Study.” 
Among turn, responsibilities was the supervision of the printin 
and distribution of the completed study. 

General Hixon, when interviewed, stated that it w 
he ordered that 25 copies of the completed, study be 
printed, ajxd only he, a Colonel Robert Purs ley and an unkno 
lieutenant commander were aware of the exact number of copie 
printed. 

Based on his recollection, he stated that nine sets 
of the study were distributed. Two of these, he said, went 
to the National Archives and the others were distributed 
among various Defense Department officials, whose names are 
already known, a staff member of the White House, and the 
Rand Corporation of Santa Monica, California. These nine, he 
said, were issued under the control of the Classified Control 
Section within the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The 
remaining 16 sets were placed in the personal vault of the 
Secretary of Defense and were not registered with the 
Classified Control Section. General Hixon advised that to record 
the distribution made, he had prepared a single copy of a 
memorandum entitled "Vietnam Study Group" and placed it in a 
safe which is presently in the office of Admiral Dan Murphy who 
succeeded him in his Department of Defense assignment. We will 
endeavor to secure a copy of this memorandum and ifornieh it

Late last night Mr. Robert C. Mardian, Assistant 
Attorney General, Internal Security Division, called me. 

He said the Attorney General wanted the FBI to immediately 
this morning interview two people to determine what they 
know about how the New York Times secured the material 
relative to the above captioned subject matter. By way of 
background on Sunday, June 13, 1971, the New York Times 
began printing a series of articles purporting to present 
a history of decision-making process by the United States 
on Vietnam policy for the period 1945-1967. The document 
from which this material was secured is classified 
'TojDS@r«Et" and is regarded as being extremely sensitive. ,

realized that he has a comprehensive knowledge within this 
context. 


Mr. Mardian said that the Department of Defense 
will have its own security personnel look into other 
developments and aspects of this case. He said Mr. J. Fred 
Buzhardt will be handling the matter for the Department 
of Defense. 


I told Mr. Mardian that the Director will have 
to make the decision in this matter and that the 
Attorney General's request will be promptly relayed to 
the Director in the morning. He said this will be very 
satisfactory. 

RECOMMENDATION: 


That the Director advise as to what he wants done

Analysis of Necessary Investigative Steps 

Unauthorized possession by New York Times of "Top Secret" 
information involved in this matter, commonly referred to as the "McNamara 
Study, " is possible violation of espionage statutes on part of officials or 
employees of the paper. 

Unauthorized release of the classified material to the newspaper 
by an individual having authorized possession is possible violation by that 
individual of same statutes. 

\ We do not feel that we should at this time interview any New York 

I Times personnel. 

We should endeavor to establish the source through which the 

I New York Times received the classified material and gear our investigation

the history of the Indochi- ; 
na war than Ellsberg, be- ;• 
cause in a way he helped ' 
make it, something he re- i 
grets very much now. • 


After a stint as a lieuten- 
: ant in the Marine Corps in 
1 the mid-1950s, Ellsberg 
joined in 1959, the Rand 
i Corp., a non-profit research 
, organization based in Cali- 
| fornia which relied on 
f heavily for secret work by 
■ the defense' and foreign 
; policy agencies of the US 
j government. 




In 1964, at the time of 
the alleged Gulf of Tonkin 
incident, Ellsberg joined 
the Pentagon, where he 
spent a year workihg- ex¬ 
clusively as special aide to 
the assistant secretary of 
defense for international 
security affairs, , ■— 


I! 


From late.r&HJSHfcrough 
June of ] 967, he was in 
South Vietnam with the 
State Depart m e n t, 
spending his last six 
months there as special as¬ 
sistant to the deputy 'am¬ 
bassador. 

Back in this country. 
Ellsberg rejoined Band, 
continuing his concentra¬ 
tion on Vietnam. He was, 
fur example, one of a tiny 
group of men who read 
from cover to cover s se¬ 
cret, 10,000-page report on 
the last 26 years of the 
war’s history that had beer* 
ordered by former Secre¬ 
tary of Defense Robert S. 


I 


j McNamara. j 

J ] 

I After Richard Nixon’s ’ 

i .election in 1969, Ellsberg | 
ri was one of another small 
group that put together a i 
(| set of options on Indochina i 
;; ior the new A dministration ! 
‘ at the request of Henry 
\ Kissinger, the President’s , 
| national security affairs j 
advisor. : 


I Ellsberg cut all ties to his 
• past a bit more than a year 
i ago and came to Cam¬ 
bridge as a senior research 

II associate at MIT’s Center 
for International Studies. 


Ellsberg wasn’t arrested 
yesterday, as he wasnt’t 
arrested earlier this week 
in Washington. However, 
as police tried to move the 
group he was sitting with 
back from in front of the 
Kennedy Building, I did 
watch the ex-Marine qui- 
■ etly accept billy club blows 
to his head, his watch, and

was completed under conditions of 
secrecy so stringent that many senior 
editors in New York and Washington 
had no idea of the massive Vietnam 
report until they read the first in¬ 
stallment in their newspaper Sunday 
morning. 

When reporter Neil Sheehan was : 
pulled out of th^ Washington Bureau 
three months ago,-staffers there 
were given no information on why he . 
was taken, or for how long. 

Shortly after that day, however, 
Sheehan, a handful of other report¬ 
ers, and several editors and copy edi¬ 
tors locked themselves into a suite 
of rooms in a posh New York hotel 
to comb througlL^aiinpX.45 volumes

cling the decision-mak'r.g of 
the conduct of the war in Viet¬ 
nam from 1363 to December, 
I'M. 

The suite was absolutely off 
limits to all but reporters 
.Hedrick Smith, E. W. Ken- 
korthy, Fox Butterfield and 
Sheehan, in addition to select 
officers of the newspaper and 
, i'-v cuuuia jnuuumg vice 
*Fiesideni James Reston and 
• Managing Editor A. M. Rosen¬ 
thal. Also working in t. j .c suite 
<was a top-fi!ght editing staff 
from the foreign news desk 
; believed to consist of Gerald 
Gold, Allan M. Siegal and 
Samuel Abt. 

To the rest of the Times 
men nothing was divulged ex¬ 
cept that there was a major 
project in the offing, code- 
named Project X. Even that 
was known to only a few 
senior men in the huge, 14- 
story, block-sized building in 
which thousands of employes 
put out the nation’s most 
prestigious newspaper, 

OVERALL DIRECTION of 
the huge job of distilling and 
presenting the Pentagon’s ex¬ 
haustive history of the war 
centered in the hotel suite and 
Jn the wood-paneled offices in 
the Times Building’s 14th 
floor. 

There Publisher Arthur 
"Punch” Sulzberger, Boston 
and, apparently Rosenthal de¬ 
liberated over the format, con¬ 
tent and shape of what has 
turned out to be the best-doc¬ 


umented story of all time, a 
story that has rocKed Washing¬ 
ton. 

Daily memos went back and 
forth between the executive suit 
and the hotel—and the Times 
legal staff was consulted ex¬ 
haustively on legal and consti¬ 
tutional issues raised by Proj¬ 
ect X. 

warn 

Ai iht! hotel, special iden¬ 
tification was demanded of 
anyone seeking entry into the 
suite where the editorial staff 
was working. The identifica¬ 
tion cards, were updated and 
changed regularly, reflecting 
removal from access of sev¬ 
eral staffers. 

' AND, DESPITE the coming 
and going of thousands of ho¬ 
tel guests, the knowledge, of 
the project, at least in rumor 
form by at least two dozen 
men, and despite the extraor¬ 
dinary nature of the project, 
word never got out. 

The Times Had' been smart¬ 
ing ever since the day when 
Kennedy administration offi¬ 
cials, aware that the Times 
knew of the impending Bay of 
Pigs invasion in Cuba, pres- 
.sured the paper in to down¬ 
playing the story and omitting 
crucial, details. 

Last Saturday-afternoon, ed¬ 
itors responsible for the daily 
production of other news sec¬ 
tions of ti m newsp aper first 
got wind of the project when 
they were told that their space 
allocation would be less than 


usual for an 84-page Sunday 
news section. "^T/icy were not 
told that the saved space would 
be devoted to a 30,000-word 
first installment of the report. 

In Washington, secrecy was, 
if anything, more thorough. 
When Sheehan was pulled by 
the management in New York, 
the staff was given no reason 
for his absence. The situa¬ 
tion was ironiudiiv like that 
in World War Jf when the U.S. 
War Department took reporter 
William L. Laurence out of 
the news roBnrtmtHnade him 

privy—in complete secrecy—to 
the development "testing and_ 
military’ use of the first Amer¬ 
ican atomic bombs. 

SEVERAL TIMES editors in 
the Washington Bureau asked 
New York for an explanation 
of why Sheehan, a Washing¬ 
ton workhorse, had been taken 
to New York. They were told ; 
nothing except that Sheehan j 
would be gone for an indefinite t 
period. j 

Only reporter - editor Max 
Frankel and editor Robert 
Phelps knew the details of 
Project X, although columnist- 
editor Tom Wicker apparent¬ 
ly had at least some know¬ 
ledge. 

The first real clue the 
Washington people had to the 
nature and significance of 
Project X was when a highly- 
placed “member.of the Ken¬ 
nedy tea m” to ld some staffers 
a few weeks “go that the 
Times was ready to unload a 
story of unprecedented pro- 
■Dortions. . 


In what ^ connecti on the man 
was associated with the Ken- 
nedys — whether with Presi¬ 
dent Kennedy, or his brothers, 
the late Sen. Robert F. Ken¬ 
nedy or Sen. Edward M. Ken¬ 
nedy of Massachusetts — was 
not known last night.

about the project. 

; And in New York the next 
afternoon, Rosenthal walked 
over to the production editors 

• in the center of the hanger-like 

• third floor newsroom. 

He told the editors that a 
six-page story would be ap¬ 
pearing in the next morning’s

there would be a oar rage of 
questions, many angry, com¬

In tiie - fall of 1967, Robert S. Mc¬

dered a secret review of the entire History 
of the war by the French and the Ameri¬ 
cans against national communism in In¬ 
dochina since the end of World War II. 

The project took about a year, by 
which time McNamara was cut and Clark

eminent at the time read parts If it, but 
as far as can be determined, only three 
men read every-word of it. 

Significantly, every one of them to¬ 
day is of the opinion that the United 
States should withdraw from Indochina 
unilaterally and swiftly. 

Moreover, every one of them, before 
deciding to leave government service and 
commit themselves to the antiwar move¬ 
ment with varying degrees of intensity, 
held sensitive job's during the formative, 
months cf the. N.iz-fcCn Administration. Ii

In the m id-1950s, r 

Ellsbcrg 'was a captain in 1% 
the Marines. In 1959, he /' 
joined the Rand Corp., a[C 
nofi-profit research organi- 
zation based in California, iny 
that is relied on heavily.by ./ J 
defense and foreign policy fb 
agencies of the ’ govern- * 
ment. jit ■ 

In August of 1964, in fact / 
on the night of the alleged f * # 

Tonkin Gulf incident, he 
joined the Pentagon as spe- fa¬ 
cial assistant to the assis- |f 
tant secretary for interna- j; 
tional security affairs, and |- 
spent the next year work- [ 
ing exclusively on Viet- ! 
nam. ' • ‘ : ’ r- 

From 1965 to 1967, he L 
was in Vietnam for the ? 

State Department, the last 5 
six months as a special as- | 
si slant to the deputy am- ; J 
bassador there/ There; it t 
was back to Rand, where 
he continued to work on \ 

Vietnam, ' f 

*i rn 


Aft.^^^tlie election in« 
1063, ^Hbcrg. along with 
such as Hal peri n and 

Geib, \^:re involved in a 
Kissinger-initiated project 
to develop a complete set of 


j.u* inc iiivumin^ \ 

Ts 7 ixon administration on ! ( ‘- 
the subject of the war. 

Significantly, Ellsberg ]/ 
said in an interview, the j ; 
one option that was left out j 
of the paper presented at j ; 
the first meeting of the Na- 
tional Security Council j * 
after Mr. Nixon’s inaugu- | \ 
ration was the one dealing ; i 
with “unilateral extrication | 
by a fixed date.” 

In early 1969, Ellsberg ! 
was also a Rand consultant i ^ 
in the preparation*of a list j. • 
of 29 questions about the ; 
war which Kissinger sent jj* 


to every department and 
agency involved. The result 
was 3000 pages of answers, 
and Ellsberg says he read 
all of them. 

Later that year, after re¬ 
turning to California, 
EUsberrg and five col¬ 
leagues took the unusual 
step of writing a letter urg¬ 
ing swift, unilateral with¬ 
drawal, that was printed in 
the New York Times and 
Washington Post just be¬ 
fore the first Moratorium 
demonstration in October. 

The following spring, he 
decided to cut fcll his ties to 
the past, and tfonrio Cam-' 


« 


bridge. 


Rllichprcr said h’ c ip.- 1 

volvement in the secret re¬ 
view of the war ordered by 
McNamara had “an enor¬ 
mous effect” on his views. 


“When I started,” he said 
the other day, “I viewed 
the war as a well- 
intentioned effort, reason¬ 
able, though in retrospect, 
mistaken. 

“But it soon became 
completely clear that 
American actions were 
really a series of desperate 
gambles actually, perceived 
as such by those .who made 
them at the time.” 

Asked about * the early 
work of the Nixon admin¬ 


istration, he said: “At first, 
the policy seemed to be to 
try and arrange a mutual 
withdrawal, with the help 
of the Soviet Union.” 

When that effort failed, 
he said, the policy changed, 
and this is when the first 
resignations from the 
White House and other 
agencies began. 

“The next option,” 
Ellsberg added., “that was 
embraced then, and appar- 
c v .iiy stil 1 is. \vas, Io 11 so the 
jargon, a red need-cost, in¬

Boh Collins* observation of the New York Times brazen act of publishing 
a SECRET REPORT and the Editors of the Indianapols Star complete silence 
editorally, to me, is an indication of just one segment of over 1 million 
Americans who have become absolutely TOLERANT OF EVERYTHING? 


The point that must be made is: THE REPORT WAS MARKED SECRET. FIFTEEN 
COPIES WERE PRINTED AND PLACED IN THE HANDS OF RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE. The 
violation that was made must be recognized? 


When American citizens of all walks of life speak out in behalf of /the 


New York Times* brazen misu se of FREEDOM OF THE PRE SS, they are condoning 
subversion? Subversion is running rampant in this nation and it is time 


IT WAS TO REMAIN SECRET.

Attached summarizes developments at 
Washington, D. C,,in-continuing investigation 
of leak of classified data to the New York 
Times. 

Note the fact that documents in this 
matter held by the Rand Corporation at 
California and Washington, D. C., are now 
held by the Department of Defense and will 
be produced by that Department if necessary 
in connection with judicial proceedings. 
Photographs of individuals believed to have 
been involved in sizeable Xeroxing of 
classified information in Boston 3/21-23/7L 
have been obtained and dispatched to Boston 
for identification pirf^poses. General Robert 
Pursley, previously noted as involved in 
preparation of "McNamara Study" at the 
Pentagon, is currently unavailable for inter¬ 
view; however, it is felt information he 
could supply would add little to our know¬ 
ledge of the preparation and distribution 
of the report. No extensive investigation 
will be made, therefore, to find him for 
interview. 

Pertinent data herein will be included 
in letter to the Attorney General, copies of 
which will be furnished to his Deputy, and 
to Assistant Attorney General, Internal t , 
Security Division.
